Roodt thanked Mogodi for his leadership and commitment to the organisation. “I would like to thank the members for the confidence they have shown in me and I intend on leading the organisation to greater heights.” Dawid says that his love for the sport started at the age of nine when he started playing. When he is not hard at work with cricket he is a labour consultant in the city.
To improve cricket in the province, Roodt will identify areas such as Seshego where he would like to develop the sport with the help of KFC mini cricket. He adds that he would like to see more women get involved in the sport.
